Pre-Registration is closed for the Spring Piney Woods Hammer In, but registrations at the door are still welcome. All come and enjoy.
The Spring Piney Woods Hammer-in, held at the W. F. Moran School of Bladesmithing in Texarkana, TX, is an event that every bladesmith, from the rankest beginner to the experienced Master Smith, should mark on his calendar.
For one thing, the timing is just right for those smiths planning to test for either a JS or an MS at Atlanta in June to bring their test knives and have an experienced judge look them over and critique them. Everyone of the demonstrators for this hammer-in is an experienced judge who has served on a review panel at either San Antonio or Atlanta within the recent past.
There will also be sessions on Basic Forging, Handles and Guards, Damascus Steel, ABS Judging Standards, etc.
